Dyamonde knows it’s what’s on the inside that counts!
Dyamonde loves eating her mom’s pancakes. Free loves eating … period. But lately Damaris just pushes her food around her plate, and Dyamonde suspects it has something to do with the mean things classmates have been saying about people’s weight. Damaris wonders if they might be talking about her too. Dyamonde knows that Damaris doesn’t have a weight problem and is perfect just the way she is—so now it’s time for her to make sure Damaris knows that, too.
In this fourth installment of the award-winning series, Coretta Scott King Award winner Nikki Grimes’s lovable Dyamonde Daniel is back, with a timely message about self-acceptance and healthy eating habits—delivered with her trademark spunk.
